It may be a little darker inside Scottrade Center Saturday night. The St. Louis Blues will participate in the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Earth Hour Saturday night.  During the Blues game against that Columbus Blue Jackets, Scottrade Center will switch off non-essential lighting for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30pm.

All of the National Hockey League’s facilities are participating.  Energy usage will be diminished at NHL headquarters in New York City at the same time.

The NHL has pledged to make the game more energy efficient and has launched what they call NHL Green to look for ways to reduce the game’s carbon footprint.

Earth Hour started in Australia in 2007. Supporters turn off non-essential lighting for one hour to send the message that now is the time to take action on climate change.
